Another Black Jack give-away!

As Osamu Tezuka’s Black Jack demonstrates, surgery can have life-changing benefits and be super-cool to watch. We shouldn’t neglect preventative medicine, of course.

So I’m asking you to offer your prescription for the comics industry. What steps can it take to ensure a healthy and productive future? Write as much or as little on the topic as you like, and send it to me at DavidPWelsh at Yahoo dot com, and you will be entered in my Black Jack Preventative Medicine Giveaway!

Five lucky winners will claim the first and second soft-cover volumes of Tezuka’s medical masterpiece, and one grand prize winner will claim the deluxe hard-cover editions. Winners will be chosen at random, and while all entries will be posted, five-page prescriptive essays will be given no more consideration than someone firing off a pithy “Take a big valium.”

Deadline for entries is midnight Sunday, Nov. 23, 2008. Thanks to Vertical for providing the prizes and for publishing so much awesome Tezuka manga in the first place.
